M. Potter, ca 1840-ca1870. Anybody have this fellow in your Potter tree?


"Seeking identity of M. Potter, who married Isabella Detrick or Dedrick about 1860-1862; she was of Augusta Co, Virginia. Their daughter, Mary Belle Potter, was born in Feb 1863. In the 1870 census of Shenandoah Co, Virginia, Isabella and Mary Belle Potter are living with her parents. I assume that her husband, M. Potter, had died by 1870. Isabelle married (2) Francis Moffit in Ohio.

In the 1880 census of Spring Valley, Ohio, Mary Belle Potter says her father was from New York. Mary Belle married George Jones. In the 1900 census of Spring Valley, Ohio, Mary Belle Jones says her father was from Michigan. In the 1910 census of Beaver Creek, Ohio, Mary Belle Jones says her father was from Virginia. Mary Belle Potter Jones died in 1916.

Most confusing!
